Last day of September.
Should we be sad? No. Instead, let's toast a fond farewell to old September
and bid October a warm welcome.
We're Irish, so here comes a little William Butler Yeats for you on this beautiful Monday morning.
"Wine comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;
That’s all we shall know for truth
Before we grow old and die.
I lift the glass to my mouth,
I look at you, and I sigh."
A Drinking Song by W.B. Yeats
There's lots of fun things happening between now and the end of October.
Stay tuned for wine tastings, (see Events)
and great food pairing suggestions.
Mythic BLOCK - Malbec 16’
Intense and bright violet red wine. On the nose, the notes of violets and red fruits stand out, all perfectly amalgamated with spicy and cocoa leaves from its passage through barrels. In the mouth it is very intense, with great body and structure, but with friendly tannins.
Mythic Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
Deep vibrant red in color with black fruit & tobacco on the nose, impressive structure, and a pleasant lingering finish to match.
Mythic Estate - Malbec 16’
Deep violet color in the glass with ripe raspberries and cinnamon on the nose.Soft texture in the mouth with sweet, round tannins and well integrated oak notes of vanilla and tobacco, followed by a refreshing yet persistent finish.
Proyecto Garnachas - La Garnatxa Fosca (Spanish Red)
Proyecto La Garnatxa Fosca is a rich and complex but easy to drink wine at the same time. It comes from vines more than half a century situated on slopes and slate terraces in the mountains of the El Molar (Tarragona), between 300 and 400 meters above sea level.
The wine combines the minerality provided by the dark shales, with the characteristic red fruit of the Grenache. The palate is rich and tasty, balanced wine of elegance and finesse, complexity and length.
Tenshen - Paso Robles Cab Sau 17’
Our - $24.99
SPECIAL - $21.99
“A wine that combines power with finesse, charm, and grace.”
– James Laube, Wine Spectator
Great wine is all about tension and the elusiveness of this characteristic.
An abstract energy that a wine possesses, inspired by picking at just the right moment and then getting out of the way.
Tenshen red exhibits brooding dark fruit that is accented by Santa Barbara spice and completed by a mouthwatering finish. The white presents aromas of tangerine and ripe melon that lead to flavors of peach and apricot. The rose features phenomenal structure and texture with a clean, fruity finish.
Villa Poggio Salvi - Brunello Di Montalcino 13’

2013 was climatically very special. Winter temperatures on the average, wet Spring, hot Summer with few peaks and many rains until mid-August. Perfect September that has led to a very interesting vintage with grapes of excellent structure and good acidities.
